Click above to register to take the 2020 Candidate Pledge.

                                                       

The Plan:  The weekend after the Democratic National Convention, we show up. 

Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19, 2020, the weekend after the Democratic National Convention, Indivisibles and others will host 2020 kickoff events across the country to show their support for the nominee and hit the ground running to beat Trump in 2020.

We must defeat Donald Trump. The first step is a primary contest that produces a strong Democratic nominee. The second step is winning the general election.  We will not accept anything less. To ensure this outcome,

                                                                               I pledge to:

Make the primary constructive. I’ll respect the other candidates and make the primary election about inspiring voters with my vision for the future. 

Rally behind the winner. I’ll support the ultimate Democratic nominee, whomever it is — period. No Monday morning quarterbacking. No third-party threats. Immediately after there’s a nominee, I’ll endorse.

Do the work to beat Trump. I will do everything in my power to make the Democratic Nominee the next President of the United States. As soon as there is a nominee, I will put myself at the disposal of the campaign.

 

This is an important start to a long primary. Indivisible is committed to engaging in this primary from now through the convention, pushing on issues that the grassroots cares about and holding candidates accountable. We’re going to work to make this a healthy, constructive primary that identifies a candidate who can build a powerful, diverse coalition and ultimately win.  Go to:

https://pledge.indivisible.org/

 

              For ideas.   For change.    For unity.    To win.

Indivisible Tallahassee's Mission

The Women's March and the Indivisible Movement were born just after the president was elected and before he was inaugurated. It's been an arduous several years for the Resistance Movement, but we're thriving and have seen some successes, including flipping the House of Representatives BLUE in 2018!   We remain dedicated to bringing about more success in 2020.
 

The Indivisible Movement now has two important tasks ahead:

  • Continuing to be in contact with sitting lawmakers to direct their actions towards democracy

  • Continuing to Flip congressional and legislative seats blue in 2020

 

Elections 2020 

Florida Primary:

March 17, 2020
 

General Election: 
November 3,  2020 

#BlueWave Coming... 


In the Midterm Elections of 2018, local Indivisible members worked hard to register

voters and to flip seats that had been red to blue — at all levels of our representative

government. 


Indivisible members took part in Voter Registration training and became third-party

voter registrants who appeared at all sorts of public events.   Our schedule is always published

on the Indivisible Tallahassee fan page on Facebook

Election Security... 


We are far more concerned about the gerrymandering of our voting districts that has been carried out by the

Republican Party in their many years in power in Florida, and with Russian intrusion into our voting process,

and with eligible voters being turned away at the polls on Election Day than we are with the oft-claimed 'voter

fraud' the GOP touts as a serious problem in our nation. It is not. But these other things, engineered by the

GOP and their allies are a serious problem. They are motivated by racism and fear of immigrants voting and

of 'liberals' who do not espouse their political or economic agenda. And so they try to control who votes. 

Former Leon County, FL, Supervisor of Elections, Ion Sancho, has produced this video about keeping our

elections and Election Days safe, accurate and secure.

Countdown to Florida's Election on

November 3, 2020

Indivisible

Movement

The Indivisible movement began just as the results of the 2016 election were known. Former staffers for Democratic mem-bers of Congress put their heads together to evaluate where things stood and what they knew from their long experience in Democratic offices. They understood that they had been on the front lines for receiving the political pressure of the Right-wing conservative Tea Party (now called the Freedom Caucus) for many years and understood that many of the Tea Party's tactics had been effective. 


• Visits to Members of Congress (MOCs)

• Demanding and attending town hall meetings with their MOCs 
• Organizing likeminded voters to vote in unison

• Writing editorials • Social networking

• Creating an identity for themselves and organizing them-selves 
 

These former staffers wrote a guide they named the Indivisible Guide and published it as a PDF file that could be distributed online. They began to network their Guide and activists be-gan to find it. After the publication and networking of the Guide, these former staffers developed a national hub for the many localized Indivisible chapters that began to spring up around the U.S. using the principles set forth in the Guide.

 

Today's national Indivisible movement is strong and growing. It remains a largely decentralized movement that allows each city and community to develop themselves in accord-ance with their local personalities and needs. Urban chapters in big cities may look different than rural chapters. Chapters in capital cities may have added activities due to the effects of state government in their communities. Indivisible's decentral-ized models allows its basic principles and approaches to be customized to the local activists' needs. 
 

Some cities host large Indivisible chapters with many commit-tees within them taking on specific tasks and responsibilities. Tallahassee developed in another way, by developing multi-ple Indivisible chapters in our small cities, each designing its own activist mission within the principles of the Guide.

Indivisible

Guide

The Indivisible Guide provides effective 'recipes' for local activism that the former Democratic staffers identify as easy, useful and accessible. Basically, it encourages citizen activists to keep the pressure on their own lawmakers by: 
 

• Requesting or demanding public town hall meetings from their Members of Congress     (MOCs). 

• Calling their MOCs every day to give feedback and input on the issues

• Writing and faxing MOCs frequently

• Making personal visits to MOCs' regional offices

• Organizing Democratic voters for elections

 

The Guide makes one very important point, too: When your party is not in power, it is not the moment for your party to propose its positive agenda. It is time to resist the agenda of the opposing party.

VIGIL and PROTEST

 November 8, 2018, 5:00 pm at the Old Capitol

 TODAY IS THE DAY!

 Sessions has been fired, and Trump is trying to suppress the Mueller investigation.

 We must NOT let this happen!

 MoveOn.org and Indivisible.org have called for a nationwide action that is organized on a local basis. 

                                                        

 Where

Historic Capitol in Tallahassee 

November 8, 2018

5:00 pm

400 S Monroe St
Tallahassee, FL 32399

 

Description
Bring your protest signs, American flags, and determination to bond together in community to insist that the White House not tamper with the Mueller probe into the 2016 campaign and Russian interference with our presidential election.

This will be a peaceful vigil on the east steps of the old Capitol facing Apalachee Parkway.

There are no planned speeches or programs since this is a rapid-response mobilization to yesterday's forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose replacement AG is hostile to the Mueller investigation. 

Bring your flashlights and battery-operated candles and lanterns. It will be dark shortly after 6 pm.

Check the weather and dress accordingly. Please wear closed footwear.

Protest signs should be hand-held and not have sticks attached.

Park legally nearby. Bring comfy shoes and water. A hat is also good. It might be cold and wet, so wear warm layers and footwear. We might be there long hours, so bring any important Rx's you might need.

Notes

Peaceful gathering. This will be a nonviolent gathering. The Capitol's front lawn is wheelchair accessible.

Event is public.
